Good podcast

Really enjoy listening to this podcast. Well written and presented. Vanessa has an easy to listen to voice.
I live in Australia so it was surprising to hear a couple of Australian stories. The name Milat still sends shudders down every Australian!
Thank you.

If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.

Was an amazing podcast until more recently. After Greg left, they changed their format and it’s run-of-the-mill now. What a shame. Was one of my favourite podcasts.
